    I don't date much. I have all the usual excuses - too busy, not into "the scene," but really, I'm just a lazy dater. I'm like the fisherman who waits for the fish to jump into his bucket. I don't go to bars or join groups, but if someone comes my way, I happily pursue.

    That's what...

    The modern-day legal guidelines on how religion fits into the American public square have largely been the creation of one woman: Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has been fiercely divided for a quarter-century, with four justices opposing religious...

    It was the first day of preschool and 2-year-old Jessica didn't know any of other children in her new class at B'nai Tikvah Congregation Nursery School. But the child's anxiety paled in comparison that of her mother.
